Medical Conditions Helped by Compassionate Care Treatments

There are many conditions that can benefit from alternative compassionate care treatments available through New York’s Compassionate Care Act including cancer, chronic pain, neuropathy, PTSD, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, Crohn’s disease, Ulcerative Colitis, epilepsy, spinal cord injury, ALS, HIV/AIDS and Huntington’s disease. 

The treatment works better for some conditions than others and varying levels of clinical research supports its use for different symptoms. For example, there is a lot of research supporting its effective use for chronic pain but much less research that it works for PTSD. More research is needed to understand the benefits and risks of compassionate care treatment. However, millions of people find that it helps for pain, muscle spasms, stiffness, nausea and seizures.
